Orlando Criminal Appeals Lawyer

In most trials, prosecutors as well as defense attorneys play by the rules, and the judge makes the correct legal decisions. But some trials are unfair. Perhaps a prosecutor played fast and loose with the rules, or perhaps the judge made the wrong decision. Other times, the law itself is unfair and needs to be changed. All these scenarios may lead to successful criminal appeals.

The aggressive Orlando criminal appeals lawyers at the O’Mara Law Group stand up for your rights during both criminal trials and criminal appeals. We understand that an aggressive nature is useless without thorough preparation. So, we hit the law books with the same tenacity that we use against prosecutors. We also go back over the facts, looking for things that everyone else might have missed. As a result, we are well-positioned to protect your rights, even if we need to go to the highest court in the country to do it.

The Five Basic Grounds for Appeal in Florida

In many ways, an appeals court is a lot like a sport’s governing body. For example, the NCAA has the power to punish schools that break the rules and reverse clearly erroneous outcomes. Similarly, a criminal appeals court can reverse clearly erroneous trial outcomes and also ensure that trial courts properly follow the law the next time around.

But there is at least one big difference. The NCAA can only enforce current rules. But an appeals court can also change the rules, if an attorney convinces the judges that such a change is necessary.

Both Florida appeals courts and federal appeals courts exercise their power in several different ways. The most prominent ones are:

Florida appeals courts usually handle state appeals matters, and federal appeals courts usually handle questions of federal law.
